Building a stronger community for everyone

Grants in this area are by invitation only and are generally made to organizations with whom the Fund has had a long term relationship.

Over the decades, the Haas, Jr. Fund has been a leading supporter of many of the organizations and institutions that make the Bay Area the special place that it is. Today, we’re building on this work through special partnerships and initiatives that create more opportunities for more people to enjoy the benefits of living in this community that we feel privileged to call home.
